Banana Dark Chocolate Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Silk. The opinions and text are all mine.

Homemade ice cream is a real treat. There are endless options that you can try. I have been dying to try my hand at dark chocolate ice cream. To make it fun I decided to make ice cream sandwiches. I took to my Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches book for a good combination. I decided on banana cookies but wanted to try my hand are dark chocolate ice cream with the new Silk Almond Coconut blends. I’m normally an almond milk drinker but I love the taste of coconut so this was the best of both worlds.

We aren’t vegans but from time to time we like to cut out certain ingredients to make a healthier meal. I also have family members that have allergies so this is a great substitute. You can grab a coupon for Silk on their Facebook page now.

I started with the dark chocolate ice cream. I started it in the evening and finished it up the following day. Start by melting the 70% dark chocolate that you chopped up in a double boiler or in the microwave in 30 second increments until it’s completely melted. Then in a separate pan heat (low medium) the Silk Almond Coconut blend and the fat of the coconut milk in a heavy bottom sauce pan. Whisk in the dutch processed cocoa powder with the milk until well blended. Add the agave and the melted chocolate until it’s well blended and incorporated. remove from heat and add the vanilla. Allow the mixture to cool completely.

Time to make the banana cookies. Cream together the mashed banana, sugar, vanilla, and margarine. Whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder together in a separate bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients with the wet until blended. Spoon a tablespoon sized amount onto the baking sheet and use your fingers to press it down to make a flat cook. Banana cookies are always fluffy and don’t melt down like other cookies do. Bake the cookies for 9 minutes and then let them cool on the pan.

After the ice cream mixture has cooled completely, place it in you ice cream maker and mix to the manufactures directions. When it becomes hard, use an ice cream scoop and place one scoop in between two cookies. Press them together until the ice cream reaches the sides. Wrap in saran wrap and place in the freezer to further harden.

You can also get creative and roll the outside of your ice cream sandwiches in something yummy like almonds, chocolate chips or sprinkles. Either way they are supper tasty. I can’t wait to try some of the other recipes in the Vegan Ice Cream Sandwiches recipe book. Next on my list is the Chai Chowdown Sandwiches.

Make sure you try out the new Silk Almond Coconut blend or their new Protein blend. Grab the coupon on their Facebook page.
